JRUN 3.0 is an app server...
Posted by Jeff Kinsey on October 15, 2000 at 3:51 PM
An application server, in addition to providing a servlet/jsp engine also, provides a developer an EJB container. In my early experience with JRUN (1.0 & 2.0 version), it was a servlet engine that had jsp's (JRUN server pages, the early .92 jsp spec). Out at Javaone this year I spoke to Allaire software regarding JRUN 3.0 and they indicated that 3.0 is now an application server which has an EJB container as well as a servlet engine. Hope this helps.
